I created this post for my fitblr, but then decided that since some of my readers are looking for healthy and tasty ways to stay satisfied, AND since some of my readers suffer from allergies, I could please both crowds with this recent find. PS: This is NOT a sponsored post, nor is Sunbutter affiliated with this post in any way, shape, or form. I really just love the stuff, but I am hoping to connect with them on some level for a giveaway at some point. *hinthintnudgenudge*
Sunbutter made its presence known to me when I was searching for “nut-free muddy buddies.” I wanted to make the recipe safe for my after school program kids who love getting their hands dirty and who love making snacks, but who also attend a nut-free school. Fast forward to the grocery store where Keith purchased my first jar of Sunbutter for me. I use it just like I do Peanut Butter, but with the benefit of more protein, less sugar, and a nice taste! I am obsessed with this stuff. Just an FYI for my fellow healthy eaters and Weight Watcher peeps. SUNBUTTER IS NOT LOWER IN POINTS PLUS, so if you’re looking for a low point alternative to PB, this is not it. If you’re looking for something new, paleo, and delicious, well, then you’ve found it!
HERE’S WHAT I DO WITH IT…
1 teaspoon Sunbutter added to 1/2c. cooked Quaker Oatmeal = 4 total points plus (and 5 hours of staying power when eaten with fresh fruit).
1 tbsp Sunbutter in a fruit smoothie made with a water base = 3 additional added points, but DAMN is it good.
1 teaspoon of Sunbutter with sliced apples = 1 points plus
1 teaspoon of Sunbutter divided onto 5 Ritz crackers = 2 points plus
So…do it! Seriously–and let me know what you come up with, if you’re already a convert, or if you think I’m a complete blasphemer. Please note: Sunbutter does contain Soy, so remember to read ALL labels before eating, cooking, or buying any products.
